a word combining the words "poet" and "potential." it literally translates to the potential to be a poet or for a piece to be considered poetry. i first used it in a piece i wrote a year or so ago and have since been using it mostly in responses to applications in a journal community.
it's tough to say. it's always tough to say, most of the time. everyone's got "poetential." well, almost everyone.
